What is it about?

One of the central questions for helping children with autism spectrum disorder is whether their movement patterns are quantitatively different from those of their typically-developing peers. Researchers and clinicians have quantified such differences in specific domains. In this work, we used an ecologically-relevant setting to show that the whole-body movements of autistic children are quantitatively different from their typically-developing peers when trying to keep their balance.
